Originally introduced at the end of the 19th century as protection against cheap imports in the UK, the term Made in Germany today applies worldwide as a hallmark. It stands for first-class production of high-quality materials and top quality.
Performance-oriented drivers expect a high degree of strength and stiffness, which can only be afforded by a solid carbon frame, whose weight is drastically reduced compared to metallic materials. The main advantage of carbon fibers compared to other materials is, besides the considerable weight reduction, the unlimited possibilities with regard to the shaping of carbon material.
Internal Cable Routing
When Internal Cable Routing the cables of the circuit and / or brake cables are routed through the inside of the frame. This allows many advantages in addition to a tidy harmonious appearance. Thus, the internally routed cables are better protected from mud, dirt and other atmospheric agents and their wear-promoting effect.
Press Fit System
With the Press Fit System, the essential difference is the way in which the bearings are fitted into the frame. These are found in nylon shells, which are pressed into the bottom bracket housing of the frame. The advantages are clear: immense weight savings, low Q-factor, more ankle-free, a more robust bearing, a stiffer / stronger crank and a simpler assembly.
The Tapered headtube ensures particularly at curved road conditions and high speeds for excellent handling. By the conical head tube (Tapered headtube) the weight was reduced in the steering range, while increasing the headset stiffness. This provides more stability while cycling, thus improving the steering and handling of the bike - whether on the road or in the field.
